Like any other sector, the baking industry can also use artificial intelligence while making bread to maintain its consistency.
FREMONT, CA: Many companies still consider the term artificial intelligence as an idea of the future. But the most intriguing part about AI is when it is utilized in a sector, it quickly becomes accepted among people. This effect has been witnessed in almost every industry.
The AI-based software helps the companies to increase their efficiency of speech, facial recognition, and vision processing in photography. AI is also used in robotics and to provide special effects in movies. In recent times, many big companies have made AI technology cost-effective and more accessible to software developers.
However, in the food and beverage industry AI can be utilized to make bread. The technology can be used to make the model of the process make sure about the consistency of baking. AI can be beneficial in the baking industry because, for them, it is necessary to maintain the quality of the bread and make it consistent. However, to affect the crust and crumb quality, several inputs, and variables need to communicate.
According to most of the bakers, the primary processing method that can impact the quality of the final product is dough mixing. Therefore, the bakery companies can use artificial intelligence to measure the consistency of the dough and enhance the bread dough mixing procedure.
There are also other factors which help the bakers to achieve the desired dough quality. Getting accurate dough mixture is essential for operational success, but it can be challenging to accomplish. The primary reason behind such complications is the unpredictable reaction among biology (yeast), physics (water movement), and chemistry (enzyme reactions, oxidation) while bread processing.
The AI solution needs numerous data and offering the AI model with such bread processing data is essential. Therefore, there are two types of data which is necessary to make the AI work, and those are the present project data and the new ones. The bakers can provide appropriate sets of flour and baking data so that the team which is managing the format for the data inputs to the AI software can use it.
The project of intelligent dough mixing is at a nascent stage. There can be many hurdles in the way to use AI in mixing dough, but there can also be several methods in which it can be used for baking in the future.
